ATC code M03 Muscle relaxants is a therapeutic subgroup of the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System, a system of alphanumeric codes developed by the WHO for the classification of drugs and other medical products. Subgroup M03 is part of the anatomical group M Musculo-skeletal system.[1]

Codes for veterinary use (ATCvet codes) can be created by placing the letter Q in front of the human ATC code: QM03...[2] ATCvet codes without corresponding human ATC codes are cited with the leading Q in the following list.

National issues of the ATC classification may include additional codes not present in this list, which follows the WHO version.
